The DEA has uncovered more players linked to the clinic. If the names are announced soon it could shake up the pennant races:



...the MLB could feel the aftershocks from this latest case for quite some time: Quinn reports that the DEA's investigation uncovered players previously unconnected to the clinic. "Names will be revealed. Expect more suspensions," he posted on Twitter.


Those names could spell trouble for a league that likes to think its steroid era has been put to rest. Nobody's making excuses for Rodriguez, who certainly violated baseball's PED rules and is now paying an unprecedentedly hefty price. But if MLB failed to uncover more players, high-profile or otherwise, that federal officials have now connected to Biogenesis, it doesn't exactly dispel the notion that league's pursuit of Rodriguez was a witch hunt. A-Rod was an easy target: the most accomplished active PED-user -- a multiple offender, at that -- who was already easy to hate. Although stars such as Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera were among those suspended in MLB's Biogenesis investigation, several players evaded discipline due to an apparent lack of evidence. The league will have to answer for whomever it might have let slip through the cracks.

I saw this too.  I just hope that whoever is suspended isn't someone thought of as an ambassador for the game.

The kids are alright.

The feds play by a different set of rules. They will release names if players don't fuss up. One of the reasons the feds got Ed Norris and Thomas Bromwell is they released a bunch of unflattering stuff and they copped pleas.
